A Guide to Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance Facebook
The unfortunate reality is that mistakes do happen. If your business finds itself in a bit of a pickle, the costs associated with those mistakes can be very difficult to recover from if you don’t have the right amount of legal protection.
 
So, what exactly is Professional Indemnity Insurance?
 
Professional Indemnity insurance protects you from legal defence costs as well as any compensation or costs that may be awarded following an alleged act, error or omission in the performance of your professional services. Without it, you could be held liable for thousands of euros worth of legal fees and compensation as a consequence, not to mention the losses experienced from the time spent in defending oneself.
 
The Undeniable Benefits
 
By protecting yourself with a professional indemnity cover, you will:
  • Have peace of mind knowing that a legal professional will be there to take care of any allegations made against you.
  • Save yourself valuable time in case an unwanted incident arises, knowing any claim will be handled by experienced and knowledgeable staff from our claims department.
  • Help reduce the possibility of interruptions in your business operations.
  • Open a window of opportunities for more work. Nowadays (and understandably so), corporate clients such as engineers and architects tend to make it a requirement to have such a policy in place before signing new business deals.
Professions that might need it
 
Professional Indemnity insurance is designed to meet the needs of individuals who work in (but is not limited to):
  • Business Professions such as Accountants, Auditors or Consultants;
  • Legal professions such as Lawyers and Notaries;
  • Technical professions such as Architects or Engineers;
  • IT Consultants;
  • Veterinarians;
  • Medical practitioners.
The bottom line is that protecting your business can seriously pay off when unwanted circumstances present themselves. Why take the risk?
